  • How Recent Regulatory And Payer Developments Will Impact U.S. Biosimilar Access
    How Recent Regulatory And Payer Developments Will Impact U.S. Biosimilar Access

    Biosimilars were touted as a tool for payers to gain savings in specialty markets, but a recent survey by Avalere of the top 25 payers in the U.S. (about 189 million covered lives) using publicly available coverage policies found that biosimilars are commonly subject to step-through polices, including those that require the patient to “fail” first on a branded product, and only then will the payer cover a biosimilar of that same branded product (i.e., the biosimilar’s reference product). Policies like this may be why although the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) originally estimated a 10-year decrease in federal spending of $5.9 billion attributable to “follow on biologics”/biosimilars in 2009, it is estimated the actual savings have only been 8 percent of that amount (approximately $241 million). So what market access issues do biosimilars face in the U.S., and where could we go from here?

Pharma Manufacturing In Turkey: No More “Now You See It, Now You Don’t”

Mention of Turkey in international market discussions can be compared to a game of hide-and-seek: You have to look hard to find it. Unlike the attention-grabbing BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India and China), or the high-flying Asian Tigers (Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan), Turkey doesn’t belong to a catchy emerging-market acronym.

A new report, though, forecasts the pharmaceutical market in Turkey to climb to just under $23 billion in 2015. That should help catch and keep the attention of the pharmaceutical and outsourcing industries.
